Better not show that to anyone under the age of 9. Kids can get pretty mean when you mess with their heads.

This is down the street from my house, so I drive by it every day and laugh for some 10 minutes on my way to work. (Yes, I do have a distorted sense of humor.)

PS: Also, you can see that I get pretty desperate for photo subjects around here at this time of year.

Here's a feeble attempt an an outdoor shot around here during the winter.

That ice is paper thin.

This was with my car camera - the E500 with the Leica Vario-Elmarit 14-50mm. I do still like the color from the Kodak sensor in the E500.

You're lucky, you've got a pond...

This is the most interesitng thing I've got to look at in the winter, except for the
boring drive to and from work in the dark...

That's OK though... When I get my tax return I'm buying a new DSLR... Then I'm going
to take some vacation time and get out of this town for a few days...

C'mon Spring...!

I see what you mean, and I do realize that I'm lucky to live in a really nice area.

The thing is, we moved here from northern Arizona which is where our hearts really are.

The was my back yard there:




This is a better view of Coffee Pot Rock (what you see in the background of the above photo):




This was the view from the front of the house (well, maybe not all the time):



We miss it every day. Where we live now is where we need to be, but not where we want to be.
